An equilibrium thermodynamic model of the interaction of calcium, phosphate and casein in milk is described in which the micellar calcium phosphate is assumed to be in the form of calcium phosphate nanoclusters. A generalized empirical formula for the nanocluster is used to define the molar ratios of small ions (Ca, Mg, Pi and citrate) to a casein phosphorylated sequence (phosphate centre, PC). From this model, a method of calculating the partition of milk salts into diffusible and non… CONTINUE READING
